Animals very grieved during tightened travel Noeva of an ark. Samets monkeys has fallen in love with the Lioness. From this love the Siamese cat - with habits of the monkey and courage of a lion also was born.
(One of legends about an origin of a Siamese cat)
Hardly any other breed of cats calls so much disputes. These cats have the aficionados asserting, that representatives of this breed not only the most beautiful, elegant and graceful cats on light, but that the most attractive in them is a mind, ingenuity, the friendly ratio to all people and gentle love to masters. Others will tell with great feeling terrible histories about krovozhadnyh cats with a black muzzle and curve tails which are dangerous to all enclosing and in the hatred to people artfully snatch even on masters who pojat and feed them.
From all other breeds of cats siamy - the most unusual, not ordinary cats. They combine " grace of the panther, precipitancy of a fallow deer, force of a lion and fidelity of a dog " - experts on breed speak. Sometimes adding: " and cunning of the monkey ".
Who of the rights in this dispute? Strangely enough, both sides are right here, it is necessary to notice only, that ill-wishers speak not about cats of Siamese breed, and about "mongrels" spoiled with people.
What has taken place? For a long time, approximately in the middle of 60th years of XX century, the known Russian figure of arts was on performances in England. This person was well-known not only as the magnificent actor, but also as the big fan of animals. It is necessary to notice, however, what simply to love animals a little, it is necessary also to know their Absence of basic knowledge and has bringed this person. In London it for the first time has seen Siamese cats, completely unknown then in Russia, and could not resist against their charm. In result it has returned to Moscow with two charming Siamese kitten colour a force-point (with dark brown marks) - the brother and the sister from one pometa.
All was fine, but kitten have grown and unambiguously let know to owners that intend to get descendants. Others siamov at that time not whether to in Moscow, but also in general in the country were not, both the owner have tied the brother and the sister. As a result of a cat have changed a phenotype, that is the complex of the external data. Instead of elegant, lengthened, long-legged " ballet dancers " with huge blue, obliquely planted glazishchami siamami began to name thick, kruglomordyh cats with small round eyes. And well-known Siamese "switch" - thin, very long direct elegant tail has turned to a curve, the broken off flourish.
Has varied in the worse side and character of unfortunate victims of human irresponsibility. They began to show frequently irritability, aggression, happened, that they responded on caress of masters an attack and plotting to a caressing hand of serious wounds. In what put?
It was clarified, that a curve tail for these unfortunate-9 it, so to say, top of an iceberg. The tail is a continuation of a backbone. If his end is curved, it is logical to assume, that in the same position there are also the others pozvonki. Curved pozvonochnye disks clamp the nervous terminations, and the animal permanently suffers from a strong pain in a spin. Speaking easier, for such cat - a radiculitis. Hardly it is possible to save tender, friendly character if permanently it hurt in you a spin, and the master also strives you on this a spin to touch. From here and aggression. Such cats and cats completely do not correspond to standards of Siamese breed and have no right on this nice pedigree name. The present Siam - an animal simply unusual.
" The Official version " appearances of Siamese cats in Europe is the fact of epoch-making peace-making activity of the British consul in Siam Ouena Goulda. For his great merits in this field in 1884 Siamese king has condescended presenting the consul a pair of animals which that has safely brought to England. Pleasures of Europeans were not a limit. Cats from Siam have made the present furor in London, fantastic sum paid for them. Then it were, perhaps, the most rare and expensive kiski. Authentic data on involvement siamov in the London exhibition in the Crystal palace and about that impression were saved, which they have made (" dreadful sort ") on audience. In 1892 Harrison Vejr, the founder and the expert of the British national club of fans of cats, has developed the first standard siamov.
It is difficult to pick up words to describe elegance of a Siamese cat, grace and the grace, hypnotizing sight big mindalevidnyh bright-blue eyes, the expressive, perfectly modulated voice. Siam goes, gracefully crossing long, very orderly legs, highly carrying a direct long tail, looks to you in an eye unique, as for a beauty on east slide miniature, eyes.
To win friendship of a Siamese cat simply. These cats marvellously strongly love people and always go him on a meeting openheartedly. Due to the graceful extended proportions of a body, siamy look it is deceptive fragile, hudenkimi, weightless, but actually cats can reach weight of five kgs. For them steel muscles. Siamy can play, rush hours one after another on an apartment, flying up on cases and one jump flying through a room. siamov experts on horses compare jog to run of the Arabian horse. Tell also, that beauties of east harems hold for themselves Siamese cats to study for them in graceful movements and graceful poses, and it very much similarly as the truth.
For siamov oval small pillows of paws, with long palchikami as for the pianist or the pickpocket, and they very much dexterously know how to use them. It is difficult to believe, but they can easily learn to open cases and boxes of desks, boxes and bags. Siamy, undoubtedly, the cleverest cats, but also the most artful and ingenious. If they liked any bagatelle, they without effort will search for her in any secret place, will get, where you would not thrust her, and if nevertheless cannot extract its will elicit for you. If this hitrjuga will make the way to you on knees, will have a look in eyes and a gentle expressive voice will ask: " Mrr! Give, please! " - I warrant, you will not resist.
